However this actress possesses a pure Indian name Indira Varma, she is a famous... English actress. A celebrity was born in 1973, in Bath, Someset, to a Swiss mother and an Indian father. A girl inherited the best from her mother - her perfect white skin, and the most bright from her father - raven black hair, such a contrast worked for Varma's benefit. As Varma intended to become an actress one day, she entered the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and graduated from it in 1995. After it she became a member of Musical Youth Theatre Company. She often appeared in stage productions and plays of Thornton Wilder, David Hare, Anton Chekhov, Harold Pinter, Noel Coward and others. A new actress, who appeared in A Tale of Love series, drew attention of the viewers. In 2004 she was cast to land a role in Gurinder Chadha's film Bride and Prejudice, where she was seen alongside Aishwarya Rai and Naveen Andrews. But the role that made the name of Indira Varma to be a household one is in a series Rome, where she portrayed Niobe. Varma's recent role was in a series Comanche Moon where she appeared together with Steve Zahn, Val Kilmer and Karl Urban.
